I dont know who you are, and just got here from a link somewhere on or from Whydowork site, but I have to say Ive just partially read your first lesson on creating a blog and have to compliment you on its simplicity and clarity. i have a blog from which ive made an amazing €1.03 !! But I just threw it together, and Im now going to read carefully your first 3 lessons and amend it, or even start a new one! Will there be more lessons?
Thank you for a great page!

Hi Hawthorn,

Thanks for the comment. I will be doing more posts but have been waiting for the latest Google Page Rank update (every three months) which is occuring right now and will slowly crawl along for the next week or two.

For those of you waiting please be patient as I have several test blogs in the works that have been set up to see which is most effective regarding all the new rules Google imposed after it's latest Google Slap. (Changes to the Google algorithm)

Upon completion of the current Page Rank update I will know which way to proceed with future lessons. The current lessons are still valid as far as how to set up and optimize your blogs. The changes imposed by Google relate to page ranking and traffic generation techniques.

For now continue to set up your blogs as outlined in my lessons but don't link them together. This is blog farming and Google will now penalize sites that do this from the same ip addresses. All blogger blogs are on the same ip address.

Other than this just follow my directions and get your blogs started - I have a number of new techniques that I will share with you but will wait until I have some page rank confirmation.



Re; Hawthorns Blog

A few tips.

Hawthorn I checked out your blog and you write well. In order to optimize your site for your keywords ( Lets assume your site will be about stage musicals - I realize it is about lots of things which is quite hard to optimize for and I recommend that you create a different blog for different themes. ) you should proceed as follows;

Start over... Ha.

Actually it is extremely important to use your keyword in your blogs name and URL address.

Your url should be something like or anything as long as you get your keyword in there somewhere.

Your page title is Hawthorn's Ramblings. Change it to "Hawthorn's Musical Ramblings.
Even better try "Hawthorn's Musical Reviews".

How many people will search Google for "Hawthorn's Ramblings"? Not Many.

How Many people will search for "Musical Reviews"? Lots. This is why you want Google to know that you do musical reviews. Google will not know what a "Hawthorn's Rambling" is.

Make sure to link your post title to your url.

Your post title is The Best Musicals Of All Time

In the Link section under the Title section insert your URL.(Posting - Create section in menu) This will hypertext your post title. See my post title above and notice that it links to this blog.

One last thing; Use your keyword in the last line of your post.


Yes people, I couldn't favourite shows from London’s West End…..


This is your current ending.

Add one more line like this;

"For more Musical Reviews please check back often."

These few tips will optimize your site for the keywords you want Google to send you traffic for. Simple but extremely important.

Keep up the good work and read through my lessons as they explain most of this in more detail.

Good luck,
